Also, since these chemicals become absorbed by the plants, they can no longer simply be washed off.
Another aspect to consider is that 99% of these studies are short term safety studies (90 days) and the few studies that were longer-term / generational studies are the ones that started showing negative effects... But those studies are quickly hit by the debunker train (often within HOURS of publishing).
Consider, if GMO's are really that safe, why is it that Monsanto had to get liability protection for a case where GMO foods could be proven to have caused damages??
That said, I would say that such liability protection is ****ing bull****.

I'm more interested in whether or not "monsters" have come up in GMO development.
Like nuclear power, I'm not against GMOs out of hand, but we've seen known bad products make it to the shelves out of greed. And that would be BAD if it happened with a non-sterile GMO.
I've always wondered why companies that want to sell "suicide seeds" make their GMO crops fertile. Seems unnecessarily risky to me.
